Mumbai Indians Team 2019: Complete List Of Players In MI And Pricing

Mumbai Indians Overview

Even after failing to make it to the playoffs, Mumbai Indians retained the core of the team in the last month’s transfer window. With a purse of meagre Rs 11 crore to spend for, Mumbai Indians had little work to do at the auction. Nonetheless, they still had 7 slots to fill for, and thus, couldn’t afford to overspend on anyone in the 2019 IPL Auctions.

MI’s biggest investments were on two of IPL’s old warhorses – Yuvraj Singh and Lasith Malinga. They bought both of the stalwarts for their base fees itself and could thus prove to be a shrewd investment, it at all the two players are able to bring back the midas touch. Irrespective of that, the social media handle of the franchise announced the signing of Yuvraj Singh in one of the most unique ways.

The Sri Lankan slinger, who was on the bench for the Mumbai team last season, will now slot indirectly as the death bowling specialist for the outgoing Mustafizur Rahman, who was released earlier. Yuvraj, on the other hand, might have come in as a precautionary purchase should the first team all-rounders struggle to find form or get injured. He had gone unsold in the first round before coming back in the bag in the later stages of the auction.

Except for these two acquisitions and Barinder Sran, all the other signings are those of young and inexpensive prodigies. The most promising of the lot has to be Punjab’s, Anmolpreet Singh.

Both Sran and Singh are very well capable of slotting directly in the starting XI should occasion demand. There would not be much to complain for the MI loyalist, with the owners doing just enough to secure the players that were needed.
